THE BLACK PANTHER WAKANDA STYLE IS HEADING TO FASHION WEEK

In honour of the highly-anticipated Black Panther movie, Marvel Studios tapped seven designers to create looks inspired by the film’s fashion. CHROMAT, Cushnie et Ochs, Fear of God, Ikiré Jones, Laquan Smith, Sophie Theallet, and Tome each designed one-of-a-kind pieces influenced by themes and characters of the movie. The looks will be unveiled at ‘Welcome to WAKANDA'” an immersive event held on February 12 in the midst of New York Fashion Week. Each of the looks will be auctioned off via Charitybuzz.com to support Save the Children.

These designers worked with Marvel Studios to create one-of-a-kind pieces interpreting different characters and themes from the movie. The designers were selected for their dedication to empowerment and individualism through fashion. In addition, “Black Panther”-inspired capsule collections from Brother Vellies, Douriean Fletcher and Josh Bennett will be on display and will be available to purchase on the brands’ respective websites.
